FAQs

Before you shoot off that text, your question may already be answered here!
Question

Is there a dress code?

Answer

Yes! Formal

Question

What is Formal?

Answer

This means ball gowns and/or tuxedos or ties not necessary! Dressed to the 9’s but not stuffy! Long/midi dresses and suits should be perfect! Dress to impress in a fun city!

Question

What is the weather like during that time of year in New Orleans?

Answer

Impossible to tell. Most years it’s been fairly warm during the day and slightly chilly at night! Bring clothes you can layer so u can accommodate both warm and cool weather. You may want to bring a jacket just in case.

Question

Can I bring a date?

Answer

Unless your formal invitation indicated an option for a guest, unfortunately we cannot accommodate additional persons.

Question

Can I add to my reserved seating listed on the invitation?

Answer

No. :) please see our plus one/guest policy.

Question

Are kids welcome?

Answer

Unfortunately, as much as we love your bundles of joy, this is an adults only event.

Question

Can I bring my teenager?

Answer

Anyone 15+ is welcome to the reception if they are included in the invitation.

Question

I have a food allergy, can I make a special request?

Answer

Please text the bride personally for any allergy requests. We may or may not be able to accommodate depending on the allergy but we must ask our venue caterer first.

Question

Will there be a vegetarian/vegan option?

Answer

All the food comes buffet style. There will be vegetarian options! As for vegan options, tbd as there may be dairy or cross contamination in some of the seemingly vegan options. This response will be updated closer to the wedding date.

Question

Is there parking for the ceremony or reception?

Answer

The venue does not accommodate parking. However, the French quarter has various public parking lots and garages and some metered street parking. Parking in the quarter is very expensive and limited, so we recommend taking an Uber! Keep in mind that driving around in the quarter is very time consuming due to the small condensed area and likely congestion and traffic because all streets are one way, so wether you drive or Uber, please make sure to schedule extra time for the commute constraints!

Question

What if I arrive after the Ceremony starts?

Answer

We understand that sometimes delays happen, however, in order to keep things running smoothly and to minimize disruptions, we ask that you wait outside until we begin the second line. Then, you can join the festivities as planned!

Question

What is a second line?

Answer

A second line is a New Orleans celebration tradition! Our own little mini parade lead by a street band! It usually lasts around 15 minutes and it’s a really short route. Usually a few blocks. Bring comfy shoes to change into if you want to participate but can’t fathom doing it in your show stopping shoes!

Question

Is there transportation to and from the hotels to the ceremony?

Answer

Unfortunately, we will not be providing transportation. Our hotel block is in the French Quarter, merely 5 blocks from the venue. The French quarter is very walkable and not very big at all. If you book a farther hotel/air bnb outside the quarter, we recommend you Uber! If your hotel is in the Quarter and you still don’t feel comfortable walking, we also suggest you Uber and/or call a bike taxi to take you to the venue.

Question

Can I wear white? Can I wear white that has florals? Can I wear beige?

Answer

No. :)

Question

What if I forgot to RSVP and I’m in New Orleans?

Answer

I invite you to check out the “Things to do” section of our website! Tons of great tourist attractions in New Orleans all open and available on November 4, 2023.

Question

What is your wedding hashtag?

Question

Where can I get beauty services in New Orleans?

There are serval blow dry bars around the city. If you are looking for a full service salon that does hair and makeup, I recommend Petal. You can book them online in advance.

Question

Do you have any hotel recommendations?

Question

Are there any other events that I should know about around the wedding?

Answer

Question

Do you recommend hotel or airbnb?

Answer

While there are many beautiful airbnb’s in New Orleans, our wedding and all of the events take place in the French Quarter. While we encourage you to stay wherever you feel comfortable, you may find it much more convenient to stay in the French Quarter where you will need no or very minimal transportation.

Question

Do you have the number for a bike taxi if I don’t feel like walking?

Answer

Yes! These bike taxi’s fit two passengers and are likely the quicker option to get around in the French Quarter. Be sure to call at least 30 min in advance! NOLA Pedicabs 504-274-1300 Need a Ride Pedicabs 504- 488-6565 Bike Taxi Unlimited 504-891-3441
